Teaching Learning Disabled Students at the Secondary School Level. What Research and Experience Say to the Teacher of Exceptional Children.
Zigmond, Naomi; And Others
The booklet examines issues and strategies in serving learning disabled (LD) secondary students. Chapter 1, on program development, reviews such program options as varieties of the resource room model and self-contained class and examines three major factors involved in decisions about program emphases: (1) administrative practices, (2) teacher orientation, and (3) student characteristics. The second chapter considers three aspects of instructional planning: assessment of individual instructional needs, student motivation, and classroom organization and student behavior management. Research is reviewed in chapter 3 on elements that affect student learning and implications are drawn for LD teachers in terms of interaction with students, structure of lessons, and learning time. Chapter 4 briefly discribes indirect services, such as consultation and communication with other teachers. Chapter 5 concludes the booklet by offering 10 recommendations for LD teachers including conducting systematic assessments, stressing motivation, and planning instruction carefully. A reference list is provided. (CL)
